By David Seale | Jemison Middle School

The homecoming court for Jemison Middle School’s Oct. 20 homecoming game against Marbury has been announced.
Eighth grade representatives are Savannah Brackin, Yoandro Camarillo, Denten Ellison, Kasey Killingsworth and Morgan Faith Lucas.
Seventh grade representatives are Amelia Baker, Savannah Basefield, Lauren Crosby, Ashley Dutton and Shelbie Robinson.
The sixth grade is represented by Meghan Jackson, Kelsey Mitchell, Kelsea Smith, Ashley Ward and Anna Wilson.
And the fifth grade court members are Tammy Marie Edwards, Courtney Higgins, Jessica Paschal, Kali Faith Trice and Kelsea Hope Trice.
In other Jemison Middle School news, the football team improved its record to 4-2 with a heart-pounding 28-24 victory over Calera on Oct. 13.  Led by Randy Satterfield’s 120 all-purpose yards and acrobatic catches, defensive standout Tyler “Hit Man” Henderson, and quarterback Jacob Hatch, the Panthers ensured themselves another winning season.
Scoring touchdowns were Keyshawn Jemison, Austin Chapman and Kortlin Zeigler, who reached the end zone twice, including a game clinching 40-yard run in the fourth quarter to seal the win.
“I was really proud of how the guys stayed in the game and kept their composure, even when Calera made a run towards the end of the game,” head coach James Morrison said. “That showed a lot of character and gives us confidence going into our last game.”
The Panthers finish the season Oct. 20 against the Marbury Bulldogs.
